Tire Air Pressure

When’s the last time that you checked your car’s air pressure in the tires? This simple task is easy to forget, but plays a huge role in your car’s performance. Inaccurate tire air pressure can cause poor mileage, uneven tire wear, and even a popped tire. The next time that you’re stopped at the gas station with an air hose, take a moment to check your tires and fill them up if necessary.

Steps to Inflate Your Tires
1. Be sure to reference your owner’s manual to get the correct PSI suggested for your car.
2. Un-screw the valve stem cap from each tire and gauge your air pressure.
3. Determine if you need to add air and begin adding air one tire at a time.
4. Don’t forget to place the valve stem caps back on your tires.
5. Not done yet! If you have a spare tire, adjust the pressure on the spare as well so that you are prepared in an emergency.

You can’t rely on the eyeball method to appropriately gauge the air in your tires. Why not keep a tire gauge in your car for emergencies and regular maintenance checks? Beware never to over or under inflate your tires as this can increase the potential to damage your tires. You may find that you need to adjust for heavy loads and extreme temperatures. The most critical time to check your tires is during extreme cold or heat. For every 10 degree Fahrenheit change in temperature, the tire pressure will change about 2%. It will go up with warm temperature, and down with colder weather.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
